Eat More Kale

21 Feb

Did you see all of they hype about the Eat More Kale t-shirts and Chick-Fil-A? Long story short, Chick-Fil-A thought that Eat More Kale was a bit too similar to their Eat Mor Chikin campaign.

Well Chik-Fil-A, we are officially broken up. We had a good run for a while but I’m a different person now… and you haven’t changed a bit.

I no longer eat any of the items that you have on your menu and I am still resentful that you are closed on Sundays.

Eventually you’ll see that this is for the best.

I want you to know…

there will always be a special place in my heart for a Chicken Biscuit & Sweet Tea

BUT ONLY KALE CAN SAVE YOU NOW! HAHA!

I bet you are thinking that you don’t like kale

Well guess what, neither do I… with one exception

                        KALE SALAD

This is one of the best things I’ve ever made and I insist that you try it, it’s so delicious!

Kale Salad (adapted from Oh She Glows)

  • 4 – 6 cups of kale
  • 1/2 – 1 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, seeded & chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mixed raisins
  • 1/4 cup hemp seed
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds/walnuts (optional)

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 2-4 tbsp broth
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp water

Directions:

  1. Chop all vegetables and place in a large mixing bowl. Reserve the seeds and nuts.
  2. Place all dressing ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Combine vegetables with dressing and toss to combine. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Serve topped with hemp seeds and nuts.

It may look ordinary and sound unusual but it is nothing short of magnificent.

I’ve eaten it three days in a row… in fact, I’m eating some right now!
